“Hilary O”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

We regard this as our local although it is in the next village. Good atmosphere with friendly staff. We eat there at lunchtimes and evenings and food is always good. They have various offers on the menus i.e. golden years which is brilliant value for a two or three course meal for us oldies before 6 p.m. (not tiny portions but a tiny price!). They offer two meals for £9.99 which is also a great deal but a more limited choice from the main menu, which is pretty varied. Sometimes we eat in the bar area and other occasions we sit in the restaurant. Either way, it is comfortable and not crowded but we tend to reserve a table for evening or weekend meals.

“Nice Pub Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Visiting friends in Bromham and had Sunday dinner in The Swan. Nice pleasant atmosphere with good service. Food was good and great value. Recommend booking a table as it gets busy around 5.00pm onwards.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

6 of us had dinner here on a Friday evening. Most went for the 2 for £9.99, which was quite good for the price. My partner went for the large fish n chips and it was no different from the cheaper version. The food was tasty, but obviously cooked from frozen. We waited over half an hour for our drinks order to be taken, but once we were an established table, we had no more complaints. Paying was a little awkward, with having to go up to the very busy bar to pay by card. Could get a potable PDQ machine to make it easier. I would say that the 2 for £9.99 offer is good, but I wouldn't pay too much more for a meal in this pub. Very busy and bustling atmosphere.

“OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

We have eaten here a few times as fairly local for us. We had the fish and chips, 2 for £9.99. It was OK for the price!
We had jam roly poly and custard for dessert which was served with a separate pot of jam - yummy. The cheesecake was light and tasty and I would recommend.
Just waited ages for drinks despite asking twice and we left in the end without having them.
